// also improve the accuracy of when the next callback occurs since the
// thread that calls Process() will also have it's tick count reference

// thread or detached from one. In the case of detaching, |process_thread|
// will be nullptr.
// This method will be called in the following cases:
// * Non-null process_thread:
// * ProcessThread::RegisterModule() is called while the thread is running.
// * ProcessThread::Start() is called and RegisterModule has previously
// been called. The thread will be started immediately after notifying
// all modules.
// * Null process_thread:
// * ProcessThread::DeRegisterModule() is called while the thread is
// running.
// * ProcessThread::Stop() was called and the thread has been stopped.
// NOTE: This method is not called from the worker thread itself, but from
// the thread that registers/deregisters the module or calls Start/Stop.
